Weekly News

Hello! It is Wednesday. The middle of a good week for me. I guess you could say today is squeezed between a long weekend of productive writing and an upcoming multi-day writing binge. My happy place. Which means, I’m in a good mood. Enjoy its effect on my news choices.

This first video is entrancing. Gross, but entrancing. After watching the slow-motion puke-up of the other snake, I began wondering how beneficial it is evolutionarily-speaking if it takes that long.

Random children’s voices repeating a nursery rhythm in the dark of night would have sent me running. I would have packed my bags, thrown the car into gear, and thought later to sell my house. That is one hell of a burglary deterrent. Even worse that it’s being triggered by spiders.

And since I was already thinking about spiders, science and spiders. Have I given you pre-Halloween nightmares tonight? I bet I did. You can’t hear it, but I’m cackling and tapping my fingers together maniacally.

That’s all for tonight, folks. See you here in seven.

I am a forty-something-year-old writer. I'm currently drafting my second book. I've also written short stories, poems, and some non-fiction over the last several years. My interest in writing formed during countless hours with my nose tucked in books. I may have even been clutching a novel as I was born. :)

    The giant spiderweb was incredible. I wouldn’t want to fall into that.

  2. Hmm… Now I’m thinking of potential new ways to freak out anyone trying to break into my house.
    Enjoy that writing time!
